Vani Hidayatur Rahman
Peacemaker #2, 2016

Acrylic on Canvas
100 x 140cm

Enquire


J "Peacemaker #2" is a visual homage and elaboration of the famous line, "The pen is mightier than the sword." Battles are often fought and won in the name of peace, violence often used to bring harmony and restitution. However, the true might is in the pen, or in the articulation of thought. With one word, we can defeat our enemies and bring back order and tranquility. Vani portrays this in the introduction of the origami crane in his work, a symbol of hope and peace. The origami crane hovers above the tip of the pen, as if working together to bring about hope and repose in whatever the pen writes.

  • +Artist Bio

    Born in 1981 in Semarang, Indonesia, artist Vani Hidayatur Rahman is currently based in Jogjakarta. He has shown his works in various group exhibitions including ArtJog 2013: Maritime Culture, Taman Budaya Yogyakarta; Return to Home, International Union of Unified Ummah Cartoon Contest, Iran (2012); Manifesto, Indonesian National Gallery, Jakarta (2010). Vani has received a number of art awards including the Best Painting accolade at the 2012 Jakarta Art Awards and was a finalist at the 2008 Jakarta Art Awards.

    Vani Hidayatur Rahman has made a name for himself with his distinctive and realistic style. With his highly complex paintings that are adorned with detailed embellishments, Vani imbues a strong concept and story into each piece and addresses pertinent political, social and environmental issues that span war to pollution. In his artwork entitled "Unity," Vani depicts a large ark - a motif that has been reiterated by other Indonesian painters such as Widayat and Amrus Natalya. However, Vani presents his own interpretation of the timber vessel by painting it in an unfinished stage of construction and glory - a group of workers on deck are still sawing, carrying wooden beams and measuring for dimensions. The flurry of activity is painted from a birds-eye view and aerial perspective, with the entire structure and frame visible - allowing the viewer to feel as if he or she is an omniscient being looking down from above.
